Gun Control, a Counter Offer

For those who would advocate stricter gun laws and challenge the second amendment I have a proposal.  Let’s first abandon the protections of the 1st amendment and outlaw every movie, TV show, book, video game, song, internet event, and article of clothing that has a gun or depicts the use of a gun.  If you are serious about changing the culture of violence, then why not start with the people who make their livings glorifying it?

So what if so many of their profits of violent expression go to fund the democratic campaigns, if we are serious about changing the culture than just making more gun laws isn’t going to do a darn thing, just look at NYC, LA, DC, and Chicago.  Cities with among the strictest laws and largest rates of gun violence.

Where is the outrage over Die Hard 1,2, and 3, the Terminator, Robocop, Batman, Superman, Fury, most Rap songs, not to mention all the violence in video games.  According to Procon.org “Violent video games have been blamed for school shootings, increases in bullying, and violence towards women. Critics argue that these games desensitize players to violence, reward players for simulating violence, and teach children that violence is an acceptable way to resolve conflicts.”

Why is it okay to allow this $21.5-billion-dollar industry to go with only minor wrist slaps when US gun manufacturers get hammered in the press and by democratic politicians on a daily basis?  By the way, maybe they are paying for these politicians to slam them because over the past 6 years we have seen gun sales soar from 3.9 million weapons/year to over 10.8 million in 2013.  I think it would be fair to say the President has done more to spur a sagging gun industry than any other president since Franklin Roosevelt.

Since it seems most liberal college students don’t like the First Amendment anyway, let's start there as we abandon our protections to change America.  Maybe Michael Moore can do a docudrama on it or something.
